Other ways to participate in the music ministry are by lending your talents for general preparation and large events. We sometimes need gifted actors and readers for our presentations or help in preparations from filing and stocking folders to publicity releases and posters for large events. The music ministry enriches the congregations’ worship every Sunday. The music ministers find their personal relationship with God and their worship experience greatly enhanced by their participation as well as an increased sense of fellowship.
